OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says two state troopers shot and killed a man suspected in a separate homicide.
According to The Oklahoman, sheriff’s deputies in Choctaw County found a 51-year-old man shot dead outside a home in Boswell, a town about 160 miles southeast of Oklahoma City. The newspaper reports the deputies suspected the resident of the home had taken a woman hostage and fled.
State troopers found the man, identified as Mack Brinkley, in a nearby county. Authorities say the troopers and Brinkley exchanged gunfire, and Brinkley was killed in the shootout. The shootings of both Brinkley and the 51-year-old remain under investigation.
